    Hello!!!!


    Guess what time of year it is. Well it's not July just yet but it's practically right around the corner. :rolleyes:


    This year it will land on the 26th of July, and it's on a SATURDAY! :O :D


    Request the day off if you think you might work that day.


    For those of you in the SA area, we will ride out that same morning, preferably no later than 5:30 am from here:

    714 W Loop 1604 N
    San Antonio, TX 78251

    From there we'll drive down to the Corpus area and meet with the guys and or gals from there in an area:

    TBD [​IMG]

    From there We'll ride down and Stop in Harlingen to refuel, and meet up with more people in that area if they haven't already headed to SPI. From there we'll head out to Port Isabel and get everybody together in the Walmart parking lot and wait for about 30-45 minutes for any stragglers [​IMG] and buy stuff for grillin'and beers and chips and what not...





    So

    5:30 Leave SA -5:45 am the latest -

    7:30-7:45 Leave Corpus area after meeting up with the tacomaworldlings from there. :p Meeting at the Walmart at this address :

    3829 U.S. 77
    Corpus Christi, TX 78410


    9:30-9:45 Arrive in Harlingen, maybe refuel there. Meet more tacomaworldlings there. Meet at the Harlingen Walmart, near the gas pumps

    10:30-10: 45 Arrive/ meet everybody in Port Isabel walmart parking lot, buy any last minute things…

    11:15 leave together for SPI then regroup outside of Access 5 before going in.



    With 2-3 stops between SA nd SPI that timing sounds about right...


    And once again here's what it was like the last four years...




    1st year:
    [​IMG]


    2nd year: [​IMG]

    3rd Year:

    4th year:

    [​IMG]




    Last year we had less trucks than the third year, may have been due to being so close to the 4th of July. So we'll have the meet towards the end of July again, and see how that works out.. That's not to say that last year was not good! SPI Fire Department came out with their trucks to help us take pictures from their raised ladders!!! :D






    So mark the date on you calendars, tell your bosses there's no way in hell you are going to work on that Saturday, do what you must, but make it to this year's SPI meet, it is an experience you will not forget!!! Good people, good times!!!

    Also, if you plan to bring anything let us know, so we can put it next to your name. [​IMG] canopy, grill, fire wood, etc...

    AAAAAHHHHHHH YEAH!! :woot::woot: can't wait for the 5th annual SPI meet. Brian or Albert or Bert, we need to go down and see if we can find a large enough spot to do the circle of trucks. I'm pretty sure theres a spot were the dunes are gone and can see the bay from the surf side. I'm thinking that is gonna be one of the only spots to get 20 or 30 trucks in a circle, maybe in a couple half circles ( x ) or :taco: :bananadead: :taco:. And i don't recall anyone ever getting on the dunes :smack: what happens on the island, stays on the island
